Having problems with your Sanyo VPC-E760 Digital Camera ?
I HAVE 2 BATTERIES AND THEY WILL NOT STAY CHARGED. THE CAMERA IS ONLY 2 YEARS OLD. DO I NEED TO REPLACE THE BATTERIES?
Yes, If your charger is good and the batteries are not retaining charge then you will need to replace provided it is repeating this even after a full discharge and charging.
This might indeed be the case if you had the batteries for a while, and have recharged them several times. Unfortunately, even rechargeable batteries don't last forever, and need to be replaced. You can actually shorten this life of rechargeable batteries if you don't "discharge", or, "charge" them up correctly when first purchased, strange as that might seem.
Hope this helps. :)

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.
Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

The battery for my camera does not charge when I put it in the charger. I have had the camera and charger for about a year without any problems until now. When I put the battery in the charger, the green light stays on and does not become yellow. I know that my battery needs to be charged because when I turn on my camera, it dies.

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)

Battery Problems CANON A80 Battery Problems Have had a CANON A80 for nearly three years. The first two years were great. The batteries would last for ages between charges, and with a new baby we took lots of photos. Then the batteries started playing up. Fully charged batteries would only last a few days, or if left would not power up at all. Have replaced the batteries, and the chargers with no improvement.

I have had the Nikon D40 for about 4 years. It has performed wonderfully and I love it. Just recently, the battery suddenly died (in one hour it went from 3 bars to one) and after several failed attempts to charge it, the camera would not allow me to take photos due to the battery needing recharging (flashing one bar). I ordered a new Nikon battery and put it in the charger when it arrived today. It registered that it was charging and after over an hour said it was completely charged. When
